Today, 12th of December, at block 498 888, another hard fork of Bitcoin took place called Super Bitcoin. Its slogan is "Make Bitcoin Great Again".

Super Bitcoin is an attempt by Chinese developers to optimize bitcoin blockchain by increasing the size of blocks to 8 MB, as well as integrating the Lightning Network technology, evidence with zero disclosure and smart contracts. The developers claim that they act on behalf of the community and implement the ideas that are most popular in it.

Please remember: "This is just an experiment." We are merely implementing the proposals recommended by the bitcoin community. Only when we put talk into action can we make bitcoin great again.

The total volume of the Super Bitcoin issue will be 21 210 000 coins. This number includes 210 000 coins, which will be received during the pre-minning.

The 210,000 pre-mined tokens will be managed by the Super BTC Foundation and primarily used to encourage early developers, invest in the super BTC ecosystem and ensure the operation of the Super BTC Foundation.

HashFlare Users to Face Withdrawal Issues

Looks like Bitcoin cloud mining is not super profitable
18 July 2018   117

Users of HashFlare mining pool can't withdraw their funds, while their contracts are threatened with a temporary ban. Even lower restrictions on withdrawal of funds in the amount of 0.03 BTC caused problems for users, but the service raised the threshold to 0.05 BTC and 0.1 ETH . This is reported by Cryptovest.

In addition, financial pyramids are often promoted under the guise of mining contracts for cloud mining. For last few months, there was a big jump in mining difficulty of many cryptocurrencies, so, old contacts had become unprofitable.

As reported, the reason for the locked funds dates back further - at the beginning of June, so much hashing power was flowing into the Bitcoin network that contracts saw all the mined coins go toward their maintenance fee.

Currently, more and more users who have purchased contracts at earlier stages are facing the fact that they can not withdraw their funds. One of them managed to return the money spent through the bank card operator after filing a corresponding complaint.

To anybody that purchased a Hashflare cloud mining contract with a credit card, it might be possible to get a refund with that credit card as one of my followers tipped me. He bought his contracts at the end of 2017.

The hash rate of bitcoin increased from 13 EHash / s at the beginning of the year to more than 40 EHash / s in recent months. The difficulty of mining in the present conditions depends on the circumstances of the specific miner. The cost of bitcoin mining for some of them is $ 4,400, while others spend about $ 5,800. However, in 2018, cloudy mining is called an even more dubious occupation than before, especially when it comes to mining bitcoin.
